Why Do Projects Fail?

While every project has a team, not all team members are always on the same side. Throughout the project lifecycle teams manage many, often conflicting, relationships among owners, CM/GCs, designers, subcontractors, and vendors – all of whom have a stake in the project.

This responsibility can thrust the team into compromising situations as they work to build a project and satisfy varying stakeholders. What’s more distressing, misaligned goals and conflicts can cause the team to underperform and fail to meet project objectives. Most troubling is cost overruns and litigation that result from improperly aligned teams and delays.

We don’t have to accept these challenges as potential outcomes during the lifecycle of a complex project. At Group PMX, we created an approach that will prevent misalignment and course-correct a failing project.

We are Changing the Game

Our approach can be applied to any delivery method to optimize project performance outcomes. The approach establishes the culture of the project delivery team to focus on producing the best value for the owner and serving the project’s best interests without conflicting priorities. It leverages what differentiates Group PMX—our team-building expertise, proactive approach to technical services, and deep knowledge of the complexities of construction projects.

How does it work?

Well, project delivery is a people business. Individuals and relationships play a crucial role in project delivery and significantly impact costs, schedules, and quality. The stronger the relationships, the better the project performance outcomes. This is the foundation for our approach and the impetus for positive change. It’s all about your team – one team, shared success.

First, we start with three core areas of focus: Team Alignment, Organization, and Tools & Analytics.

Each area develops and promotes a project culture grounded in Project-First Thinking, collaboration, contribution, communication, and commitment. The approach manages relationships, defuses conflicts in the project environment, and enhances adherence to budget, schedule, and quality, including coordinating with and taking guidance from the CM/GC and project stakeholders.

A cross section of multiple projects have contributed to the creation of this methodology across all markets sectors including infrastructure, buildings, and energy. CEO, Michael Giaramita, and our team have refined this approach and are ready to support you as you tackle your project’s toughest challenges.
